Event Information

Come chat with us! As we warm up to the Fall 2021 cohort of the fully online Entrepreneurial Journalism Creators Program at Newmark J-School, join our program director Jeremy Caplan in this Q&A session to hear from alums of the EJCP, ask questions about the program and talk about what it means to work independently as a journalist.

We are looking forward to meeting you – don't forget to register to join!

In the meantime, you can read reflections from our graduates and get to know their projects on our Medium page.


The EJCP is a virtual 100-day program for creators from all around the world who are interested in building their own projects. Participants learn to identify and build audiences, explore business models and monetization to make their journalism sustainable.

Applications for the Fall cohort are open until August 29 at 11:59 pm ET and classes start on October 12.
